A new instrument cluster reading?

Last night my Vectrix displayed a instrument panel reading that was new. After a 5 hr delay, the scooter woke up and here is what was displayed. Where the line voltage is read 000. Next to that read CO. The battery voltage was 123. The temp was 28. And the timer was counting down from about 2 hrs. The speedo read 15. This seems like a balancing 1.5 amp charge, but at the start of a charge ?? I have seen all of the other readings like CC, CP, TR, EQ before, but never CO. Maybe it has and I just missed it. Anyone else have this reading? I have the latest software.

I did see a CO in December, charging after the first full discharge after my firmware was updated. It happened at the end of the charging cycle, 17 bars, with about 5 min (and counting down) before bike shut off. This was about an hour after a typical CC phase charging at the usual 2.9A. For this CO: line voltage 153, battery voltage 152, charging at 9.8A indicated on the speedo and 13A measured at the supply, temp 21C. When I came back 40 minutes later the bike was off. I believe I've seen a couple of CO's since but have not been monitoring the charging cycle as closely since then. Perhaps this is a countdown to an optional temperature-dependent cooling (CO) phase?

Could you please elaborate on this? I don't understand how you get these measurements and where they are taken from.

Sorry for not being more explicit. The center LCD indicated "CO 153" - 153 being the voltage limit. The left LCD indicated a battery voltage of 152V. The speedometer indicated 98 KPH = 9.8A charge current. The bike was plugged into a "Kill-A-Watt" meter which was in turn plugged into a 120 VAC outlet; the meter indicated 13A was being drawn.
